Good things often come in threes; like feet in a yard, coins in a fountain, rings in a circus, and now: Aprons in a Series! We have a new set of projects in our fun 3-in-1 Series developed with our friends at Janome America. Our goal is to to show you one great design made
Looking at something from different angles is a smart approach for most things in life. It’s also the idea behind the 3-in-1 Series we developed with our friends and sponsor, Janome America. This Series shows one project done three ways on three different machines. The first apron in the series: Easy Elegance debuted this past

This pretty apron shows off a number of fun embellishments and sewing techniques. And it’s one of THREE different looks built on a basic design that features an empire waist, piping accents, patch pockets, and wide sash ties.

A bed runner is a decorative throw for the foot of the bed that helps protect a fancier full-size quilt or bedspread. Sit on it or stretch out and place your feet on it. We used ours to show off some pretty patchwork and quilting.

The classic oven mitt presents an excellent surface for embellishment. As our embellishment option, we chose a Flourish Alphabet Monogram – one of the built-in designs on our favorite Janome embroidery-only model: the Memory Craft 500E. And, we’ve done this beautiful embroidery with three colors of Aurifil 50wt cotton thread. The result may just be

Create a fun, colorful, insulated lunch bag that features a bold monogram clearly stating, “That’s my PB&J, dude… hands off.” We combine a linen-blend solid with a striking quilting cotton on the outside, wipe-clean rip stop inside.

Embroidery turned a simple round, white pillow into a stunning statement. Our friends at Janome America sponsored this beautiful custom embroidery design, allowing us to offer it to you as a free download in the six major embroidery machine formats. The ascending and descending triangles simulate a rosy sunrise reflected in a cool mountain lake.
The new AcuFeed™ Flex Professional Grade Foot (HP2) and its matching Professional Grade Needle Plate from Janome have been gaining quite a reputation for their precision stitching. Well alrighty then… it’s time we took the set for a little test drive. Follow along to see how we put this specialty set through its paces, testing
A skosh, a wee bit, just a hair... sometimes, the distances we want to work with when sewing aren't quite as precise as the engraved inch and millimeter markings on our machines. Wouldn't it be great if there was a foot you could manually adjust to perfectly align with the exact distance you wanted? There
We love looking for ways to use decorative stitching. It can add just the right pop of embellishment to a project. This striking oversize clutch provides the perfect large, solid surface for concentric rings of stitching applied with the Janome Circular Sewing Attachment in a bold, 9mm stitch width. Vary the fabric palette, the coordinating
The name is due to its similarity to the wide, ornate straps musicians have always used to hold their guitars. By changing how the ends attach, they are now also a fun way to update any bag that uses a removable strap. We created ours to show off the decorative stitch package on our Janome
Set this pretty kitty on your sofa to keep watch over the rest of your pillows. The bold silhouette with its sweet dimensional bow is truly the Cat’s Meow. Our original design was created to show off the amazing appliqué capabilities of the Janome machines, which have amazingly precise stitch quality, from the top-of-the-line sewing
We’re always on the lookout for designer trends in retail shops, online, magazines, and more. It was during a recent search that we spotted a number of pillows with dense panels of decorative stitching, as well as many featuring embroidery accents and tassels.

We started with a basic bib and skirt design in two natural colors of cotton duck, then added multiple lines of 9mm decorative stitching. The result:
Sergers. For some, the word alone can send them screaming into the darkest corners of their sewing rooms. “The threading… not the threading… make it stop!” Well, perhaps that’s a wee bit dramatic, but the fear of threading the loopers on a serger, “Sergiothreadaphobia” as it is known in medical circles, keeps many a sewer
A cover hem is a professional-style "serged" hem that traditionally has two to three lines of parallel stitching on the right side and a looper stitch which covers the raw edge of the fabric on the back side. It's the type of hem commonly found on most ready-to-wear knit garments (and many woven RTW items
We get a lot of questions about zippers. They seem to live at the top of many people's lists of Sewing Phobias (ziphobia!). In an effort to calm these fears, we already have three step-by-step tutorials for inserting standard zippers, tackling invisible zippers, and putting in an inset zipper. We're adding to the zipper toolbox

This unique apron pulls together three embellishment techniques: embroidery, decorative stitching, and quilting. We also added form-flattering pleats underneath the waistband and darts in the lower bodice.
